Whelp, what a night! I was actually able to sit at a table and most follow a conversation sometimes. Couldn't participate but I could follow it mostly. Not bad, not bad! My social anxiety kicked into high gear at some point in there but that's something to work on. It was more about working too hard to hear rather than not being able to understand, if that makes sense.
Was also my first performance since my CI and it wasn't all that scary. Not that I thought it would be...but I honestly didn't know what to expect. As ever, my partner made me look good, I just provided the canvas. It felt great to be out on the floor again. I guess you could say that my fears are mostly gone. I still have work to do but I've crest the mountain and now I'm picking up steam downhill.
As ever, thanks for listening! 🤟🏾💝🤟🏾
